New Division/Section alignments offer appeals

After new school/sport alignments involving revamped sections were approved last spring, the new two-year alignment and scheduling blocks were put into action beginning in the fall. The result being (mostly) smaller sections within each division and geographically nearby (for the most part) was much more positively received than the previous two-year alignment strategy. Unlike the previous model, nearly every school will play all other schools in its respective section, which allowed for a more realistic section champion and automatic state tournament berth. The other well-received concept was the ability to appeal a school’s divisional and/or sectional placement for an individual sport through an appeals committee based subjectively on recent competitiveness, socioeconomics and the sport’s participation numbers at the school. All told, 527 appeals (any combination of a school and its sport(s)) submitted appeals, 463 of those were to move a sport down a division, 64 programs appealed up.
